A cash in... Yeah I initially thought that too but it could be a nice opportunity to release some of the remaining Freddie solo demos and such.

Similar to the Queen deluxe re-releases last year ... one hopes anyway.

Let's hope we get a new alternate version of awesome tracks like Yellow Breezes, Gazelle or God Is Heavy.

I understand when we, as fans, whine a lot about the re-releases of magic tour dvds, greatest hits compilations when there's so much stuff from the 70's that need a proper release. I completely agree with that !!

But now, are we complaining because a release of Mr bad Guy needs to have rare stuff? or that is just more of milking the cow? we are never happy aren't we ?

we got a lot of demos and unreleased stuff from freddie in 2000



I think its time to have a proper Mr Bad Guy CD, remixed maybe but as close as the original as it could. Any extra freebies are welcome.


In fact it should have been done before that compilation "Lover of Life, Singer of Songs"

I love "Lover Of Life, Singer Of Songs: The Very Best Of Freddie Mercury Solo" compilation! Things are going great! I am psyched at the idea of a re-release of "Mr. Bad Guy"! Question is...will it be released in the U.S. of A.? I would be thrilled at that release being remixed as well! Ow! Now Queen just need a new line-up again touring with members from The Queen Extravaganza and record and release new studio l.p.s!

I don think that territories releasing or not releasing stuff is nearly as much of an issue these days when you can buy online from anywhere. Yes it may cost a bit more, but not the impossible job to hear or own this stuff as it once was.

I actually think this could be all right - a new, mixed version of Mr. Bad Guy.


Most of the songs sounds way too 80s!

"Foolin' Around" is great though ;)

No, it'll just be the regular tracks, only all the synth parts have been removed and replaced by new, better, more modern synthesizers that won't sound dated for at least two years. Also, writing credits for all songs have been changed to "Brian May" to more justly reflect the creative process.

I didn't think the album was that bad at all. Mr Bad Guy and Man Made Paradise being two of my favourites.

I wouldn't want to see the album "re-imagined" like the Barcelona re-release though.

Would be nice to see some of the balance and EQ flaws addressed - a simple remaster would be ok in my eyes.

I hope they'll do a bonus disc with newly uncovered rarities featured in the upcoming Freddie documentary - The Great Pretender.

Would be a nice little package.

replace the synths with guitars and it would sound a lot better. Made in Heaven (Queen version) being an example.

maybe we can have the michael jackson tracks as bonus (allthough I know that these are owned by the jackson estate), that could be a nice addition!
